I was 29 when my son was born. I want to have another in a few years, and I feel like if someday I want a third there is still plenty of time...I know a lot of women having babies at 37-40. The whole "advanced maternal age" thing doesn't really phase me, I think the actual odds of problems are not as bad as people think. I think having my first at 29 was pretty good--it gave me my entire 20s to put myself through school (which took a while), travel around the world, meet my husband, get a good start on a career I enjoy (and which I can do from home, eventually, although for now DH is a SAHD and I WOH).
I know I am much more mature as a parent than I would have been in my early 20s--back then I thought that breastfeeding was revolting and "parasitic" and that there was no way I would ever do that! I also wanted to have an elective c-section under general anesthesia! And I thought circumcisionn was no big deal and the dad should decide
. I shudder to think how things would have been if I'd had a baby with my first husband (had a pregnancy scare during a very brief marriage to a complete idiot when I was 23). So I'm glad I had a lot more time to be exposed to more progressive thinking on birth and parenting.
